THE HISTORY

The Chamber was believed to have been founded in the early 1970s. it is one of the largest in North Dorset and currently has approximately 100 members. It has become a key player in the redevelopment of the town’s commercial and industrial base and supports the British Chamber of Commerce’s approach to town centre development.

AGM MEETINGS

The AGM is held in May and we encourage members to attend to promote ideas and suggestions. We have an annual Summer BBQ, and  Christmas drinks, alongside our other networking events. Local and National Government consult Chambers on almost every aspect of town life, which can only be to the advantage of the town. We have also represented the town at a number of meetings and seminars concerned with development and help for businesses in the area. Gillingham Chamber of Commerce meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, hosting alternate evenings of committee and Members meetings.
